Don't Waste Your Soul

 


 

Don’t waste your soul, O thoughtless fool

Rushing through each pleasured day

Vanity and toys consume the priceless gift God gave

For eternity’s not long enough for you for sin to pay

 

Don’t waste their soul, O lazy Christian

The harvesting of ripened fields cannot a moment wait

Go and reach your neighbors and those around the world

Or the sounding of the trumpet will announce you are too late

 

Don’t waste your soul,  O hear the Master

 He is pleading once again—

Come believe the Truth, the Way and let new Life begin!

Do you know you are the treasure He bled and died to win?

 

Don’t waste your soul

Reviving the Stones

 

An object at rest tends to stay at rest—

These stones hadn’t moved for quite some time

Buried in the rubbish left behind

They waited for someone—anyone--to care

 

It didn’t have to be the best speaker

Or one with talents by the score

But just one willing to fill the breach

To stand before the Lord

 

Have you ever heard a stone rejoice?

A rock “Hosanna” shout

When God is exalted, miracles start

Even mountains move about!

Abba, Father

 

 

A name declared

A home prepared

Abba, Father

 

One who leads

Who meets each need

Abba, Father

 

One who hears

Comforts, cheers

Abba, Father

 

He loves, forgives

For others lives

Abba, Father

 

A gentle Guide

Walks by our side

Abba, Father

 

All-seeing eyes

With words so wise

Abba, Father

 

Rewarding right

Sin flees His sight

Abba, Father

 

 

This is my Praise

Eternal days

Abba, Father

 

**********

 

Galatians 4:6  And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying,

Abba, Father. 

 

 

John 17:25-26  O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 

And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

He Said It Again


 

He meant it the first time He said it--

He always did

But he knew the human heart

So he said it again and again

 

In raging rain and howling storm

It speaks a “Peace, be still”

When faced with things outside the norm

His own peace our hearts fill

 

Peace that keeps through darkest night

Whispering “Never fear”

Then pulls us into warmth of light

“Thy Saviour is ever near”

 

Now look upon His wounded hands

Behold His side and feet

For you He bled upon the Cross

He is our Peace complete

 

**********

 

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33

Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

 John 20:19

Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. John 20:21

And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. John 20:26

The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)  Acts 10:36

This is the Confidence

 


 

There’s a Refuge from the wicked darts

Assurance through the test

A Place of peace and safety

Where my mind can find some rest

 

A Knowledge of the Promises

A Trust in God above

Who watches for His children

Enfolds them in His love

 

Yes, Prayer will walk the Pathway

Left by wounded, bloodied feet

In the fear of the Lord to seek His Will

He our Confidence Complete

 

*****

 

Proverbs 14:26

In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence:

 and his children shall have a place of refuge.

 

1John 5:14-15

And this is the confidence that we have in him, that,

if we ask any thing according to his will,

he heareth us:

And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask,

we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

The Power of His Might

 The Power of His Might

 

Building a tower to Heaven

The Pharisee picked up his tools

His zeal to obey the letter

Caused pride to muddy the rules

 

This man was not good in his heart

He walked just like those he did hate

But in his mind, he was righteous

And all that he did was first rate

 

But that would never be enough

To satisfy the cost

There is only one Way—

Our Jesus and His Cross

 

The Pharisee didn’t have the power

That brought Christ down from Glory

Nor did his goodness have the strength

Of Resurrection’s story

 

The righteousness that truly counts

Is God’s and His alone

For only the power of His might

Has strength to sin atone

 

Galatians 6:12-15, Philippians 3:4-9, Romans 10, 11:6

Where Be All His Miracles?

 

Where be all God's Miracles?

Where is His mighty arm?

Why does the Spirit seldom work

Why happenings that alarm?

 

These questions are quite valid--

The answer is in His Book

God still has all power

But we right paths forsook

 

Our enemy is not flesh and blood--

It fights us from within

God's miracles will not happen much

When we secretly love our sin

 

Christian, seek the altar!

Confess your wrong and pray!

For God still looks for humble souls

To do miracles through today
